Health Tip – Dec. 19 – Which Bad Health Ruts Should You Avoid During the Holiday Season
The first is lack of sleep. You’ve got parties to go to, family to visit, you’re not sleeping in your own bed — it wears you down. Avoid sleeping aids if you can, so instead try an old trick: naps. Even 20 minutes in the afternoon can make a huge difference in your energy level.
Second is alcohol. Calories, hangovers, and mood swings generally do not make for merriment. At the same time, a hot toddy can make all the Bing Crosby music easier to deal with. Drink in moderation. And alternate each drink with a glass of water.
The third is exercise. Each morning, before anything else, do a quick and simple workout.
